Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Originally constructed in the mid 1980s and occupied by the same family since, is this luxurious detached family home. The property was built for the exact requirements of the owner and employed the craftsmanship and professional services of some of the finest tradesmen in the country. Internally the property has solid mahogany panelled doors, cornicing and decoration and has been immaculately maintained.

Security plays an important part in the property, with a gated entrance and security gatehouse giving access into the private grounds, which include a large courtyard and parking area lying adjacent to single garage, security office and separate wc. Attached to this is an independent cottage which has a large double bedroom with en-suite shower room/wc, a lounge and a fitted kitchen. It would equally make a very good studio or professional consulting office.

The house itself is predominantly a bungalow, but with the benefit of an enclosed staircase leading to the first floor where there are two dormer windows giving excellent light to two large double bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms and fitted wardrobes. The main entrance to the house is highly impressive, with a beautiful portico and entrance vestibule linking through to the central hall. The hall is a lovely feature and focal point to the property, with beautiful mahogany doors, handmade carpeting and access to a cloakroom/wc. The drawing room is very substantial in size, with circular bay window and separate dining area and a beautiful fireplace. The kitchen is at the front of the house, with a beautiful bay window, high quality oak wardrobe furniture, an Aga and extensive built-in appliances, a large breakfasting area and access onto a substantial utility & laundry room and a separate side entrance hall. To the ground floor there are two bedrooms. The master bedroom is a very substantial room with a raised dais, beautiful fitted wardrobes, a luxury en-suite bathroom/wc and lady's and gentleman's dressing rooms. The second double bedroom is also substantial with an extensive arrangement of wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom/wc with wet room area. The house has an internal courtyard to the centre of the property, with glazed doors linking from the main hall, as well as the utility & laundry room.

The Woodlands has a gas radiator central heating system and double glazing set in wood frames. The security system is extremely impressive and links to a 24/7 monitoring service. Internal fabrics, wallpapering and bespoke carpets are of the highest luxury and quality.

The Woodlands is set back from Sunderland Road, backing onto delightful open countryside, as well as having very impressive gardens and grounds with lawned areas and flower borders. The house has good accessibility into Sunderland, as well as locally to the village centre with its quality restaurants and public inns. There are beautiful beaches nearby and sporting/recreational facilities.

The Woodlands is a unique and very special home for which viewing is strongly recommended
